CHICAGO — Leading up to the Chicagoland race and the start of the playoffs, Aspen Dental — the official dentist of NASCAR — got fans into the race spirit a little early. And at the same time, reminded them in a fun way that it’s never too late to get started in breaking down the barriers that keep them from going to the dentist.

Aspen Dental built a pop-up go kart track in the heart of downtown Chicago so fans could fill their need for speed while knocking down symbolic obstacles to dental care like Judgment, Fear and Discomfort.

Danica Patrick was on hand offering tips to racers, giving a play-by-play of the action and talking to attendees about why a healthy mouth matters.

The event was the latest activity in Aspen Dental’s Get Started program, launched at the start of the 2017 season to encourage fans in unexpected ways to get started or restarted on their own personal road to better care, better smile sand better lives.
